Aquaculture

Aquaculture – a word that has it all. It is well known that aquaculture means controlled rearing of aquatic organisms, i.e. animals that live in water. In addition, however, to the initiated, the term aquaculture implies a long and steadily growing list of challenges that arise, for example, in the commercial production of fish and crustaceans. Leiber Brewers’ Yeast products help you overcome these challenges efficiently and sustainably.

Leiber Brewers’ Yeast®

Real brewers’ yeast, real efficacy.

Leiber Brewers’ Yeast® is rich in valuable bioavailable active ingredients and nutrients. It is produced in a sustainable way in breweries – in compliance with strict food quality guidelines. This makes it a real brewers’ yeast, because it contains the polyphenols from the hops, which are added during the brewing process. These hop polyphenols complement the well-known beneficial nutritional properties of brewers’ yeast by providing additional antioxidant and bacteriostatic effects.

 

Advantages of Leiber Brewers’ Yeast® in aquaculture:

  • Rich in valuable nutrients and active ingredients
  • Dietetic and prebiotic effects
  • Antioxidant and bacteriostatic effects
  • Available in roller-dried and spray-dried form

CeFi® pro

The all-rounder.

CeFi® pro combines the positive effects of beta-glucans and mannan oligosaccharides in the cell wall with the natural components of the cell interior like peptides, free amino acids and nucleotides in one product.

 

This addresses not only immune-relevant and prebiotic effects; the high concentration of valuable cell constituents also becomes bioavailable to the organism much more quickly and easily owing to the cell wall perforation caused by autolysis.

 

Advantages of CeFi® pro in aquaculture:

  • High bioavailability of the nutrients through autolysis
  • Particularly suitable for species with a short digestive tract
  • Suitable for demanding recipes
  • Helps maintain and develop good gut health (eubiosis)
  • Stimulates the metabolism
  • Positive effects on performance

Biolex® MB40

The inner protective shield

Biolex® MB40 is characterised by a number of different mechanisms of action, for example the prebiotic effect, binding and displacement of certain pathogens and mycotoxins and general improvement of gut health.

Biolex® MB40 consists of cell walls of brewers’ yeast (100% Saccharomyces cerevisiae), obtained by centrifugation after biotechnological disruption of yeast cells. During this process, mannan oligosaccharides (MOS) and beta-glucans accumulate and specifically active segments of the cell wall are released.

 

Advantages of Biolex® MB40 in aquaculture:

  • Helps maintain and develop digestive tract health (eubiosis)
  • Supports disturbed intestinal microbiome (dysbiosis)
  • Can be used in difficult rations (vegetable proteins, mycotoxins, etc.)
  • Improves the morphology and integrity of the digestive tract
  • Helps maintain and promote immune competence in growth phases

Leiber® Beta-S

Leiber Beta-S. Outstanding!

Leiber® Beta-S products with highly pure beta-1,3-1,6-glucan molecules from the cell wall of brewers’ yeast (100% Saccharomyces cerevisiae) increase the immune competence of animals, thus supporting their natural defences. A particularly gentle process developed by Leiber detaches the beta-glucans from the cell wall complex of brewers’ yeast. In this way, the native structure of the molecules and thus their biological activity is retained much better than in conventional methods. The beta-glucans are recognised by immune cells in intestinal tissue by means of specific receptors, which induce a broad immune response via signal cascades without triggering disease symptoms. To increase the immune competence and thus support the natural defence of all animals, our highly purified glucans offer an optimal solution.

 

Advantages of Leiber® Beta-S in aquaculture:

  • Increases non-specific and specific immune responses
  • Increases resistance to stress and disease
  • As a result, higher survival rates
  • Increases vaccination effect (adjuvant effect)
  • Immune system build-up in the larval and juvenile stages
  • Long-term administration possible (no immunodepression)

Presentation of the main mechanisms of action of Leiber® Beta-S

  1. Uptake of ß-glucans from the gut lumen via M cells and phagocytosis by macrophages (or also via dendritic cells)
  2. Activation of macrophages increases phagocytosis and the release of reactive oxygen and nitrogen radicals (oxidative burst), antimicrobial peptides and lysozyme  increased combat of pathogens
  3. Release of cytokines and chemokines recruits more immune cells. Macrophages present antigenic structures to T and B cells, causing B cells to subsequently produce antibodies
  4. Activated macrophages migrate to organs of the immune system where they break down the ß-glucans into smaller fragments
  5. In the organs of the immune system (bone marrow, spleen and lymph nodes), these ß-glucan fragments and cytokines are released, activating other immune cells such as granulocytes and NK and T cells

Leiber NuTaste®

Irresistibly healthy.

Leiber NuTaste® – increases the attractiveness and acceptance of feed. Using a particularly gentle process developed by Leiber, the soluble cell interior (yeast extracts) is released and detached from its natural yeast cell wall connection. Only in this way can the individual components exert their effect. In addition, this enriches the relative content of valuable nutrients and active substances in the cell interior (proteins, amino acids, nucleotides, vitamins, minerals and trace elements). In particular, the water solubility of the extracts in combination with the high levels of free amino acids and nucleotides increases attractiveness and palatability, thus increasing feed intake.

 

Advantages of Leiber NuTaste® in aquaculture:

  • Increased attractiveness and acceptance of feed
  • Higher feed intake and less feed loss
  • Suitable for demanding recipes
  • Positive effect on growth performance and feed conversion

Functions

Fishy facts

Worldwide, the number of species produced is estimated to be over 600, with around 90% of the produced amount of fish and crustaceans (especially shrimp) being accounted for by 27 or 6 species. This diversity is reflected by the variety of environmental and climatic conditions, such as salt, brackish, fresh, cold and warm water. The production requirements differ accordingly. The proportion of fed aquatic species versus unfed species in aquatic animal production has risen to almost 70% since 2000. Owing to the increased demand for feed, the demand for raw materials is also increasing. This fact, combined with the increasing importance of sustainable production and animal welfare and the need for economic efficiency, leads to a complex trade-off.

Animal welfare fish

In terms of fish feeds, Leiber Brewers’ Yeast products make an effective contribution to strengthening the digestive and immune systems of fish to achieve and stabilise high animal welfare standards. Animal welfare and productivity are not incompatible – on the contrary!

Only fish with intact immune and digestive systems can grow in a healthy and sustainable way and develop their full potential. Fish kept according to high animal welfare standards are less stressed, less susceptible to disease and require fewer drug or veterinary treatments.

 

Advantages of Leiber Brewers’ Yeast products for fish:

  • Vital and healthy fish population
  • Important for all life stages of the fish
  • Improved image for consumers

Animal welfare crustacean

Animal welfare for crustaceans: tough on the outside. Healthy at the core.

Fact: investing in animal welfare always pays off. In crustacean breeding, Leiber Brewers’ Yeast products help to increase and stabilise the immune status of the stock sustainably. Crustaceans, for example shrimp, with intact immune and digestive systems can grow in a healthy and sustainable way and thus develop their full potential. Crustaceans kept according to high animal welfare standards are less stressed, less susceptible to disease and require fewer drug or veterinary treatments. Ultimately, all this has a positive effect on the profitability of production.

Gut health, Fish

Gut health, Fish

Prebiotic. Promotes health.

Prebiotic ingredients in inactivated yeast products serve as a substrate for the intestinal microbiome and thus effectively influence the digestive and absorption processes of fish. Displacement and binding of certain potential pathogens and mycotoxins can also be achieved using yeast products.

 

Gut health plays an extremely important role, since the digestive tract of fish is considered to be one of the main routes of infection. Intestinal protection is active immune protection, because approx. 70% of immune cells are located in the lymphatic intestinal tissue (GALT – gut-associated lymphoid tissue).

 

Advantages of Leiber Brewers’ Yeast products for fish:

  • Help maintain and develop good gut health (eubiosis)
  • Support disturbed intestinal microbiome (dysbiosis)
  • Can be used in difficult rations (vegetable proteins, mycotoxins, etc.)
  • Improve intestinal morphology and integrity
  • Help maintain immune competence in growth phases
